Teenage Obesity Link to MS

New research has uncovered a link between obesity in teenage years and future risk of developing MS. A study tracked more than 238,000 over 40 years and found that women who were obese at 18 were twice as likely to get MS. This may be due to the fact that obese women tend to have lower levels of vitamin D (a nutrient that has been linked to prevention of MS). Another possible cause is that fatty tissue secretes substances that effect immunity and may make MS more likely
